Tomorrow is election day, so get out and cast your vote on measures like Prop L, the bid from Sean Parker and the Republican Party to enshrine 20th-century car-centric policies in SF. The SFMTA will also hold three open houses on proposed transportation improvements this week — two on Muni’s 5 and 28 routes, and one on a protected bikeway on the Embarcadero.
Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:
- Tuesday: Election Day — get out and vote! On the ballot is Prop A, the $500M general obligation bond for transportation; Prop B, Supervisor Scott Wiener’s measure to set aside more general funds for safer streets and Muni; and Prop L, the measure that pushes free parking instead of safer streets. Contentious seats are also up for election in Supervisorial District 10 and BART District 8.
- Wednesday: The SFMTA will hold an open house on changes planned to speed Muni’s 5-Fulton route. Proposals include adding bus bulb-outs and replacing stop signs with transit-priority traffic signals. 6:30 p.m.
- Thursday: Come to the SFMTA’s 28/28L open house to learn about proposals to add bus bulb-outs and to consolidate stops on 19th Avenue. 6 p.m.
- Also Thursday: At the SFMTA’s Embarcadero Enhancement Public Workshop, you can weigh in on the design of a protected bikeway on SF’s waterfront through hands-on exercises. This workshop will focus on the Embarcadero between Folsom Street and AT&T Park. 5:30 p.m.
- Thursday through Sunday: The SF Urban Film Fest will feature engaging media and forums focused on urban planning’s role in social equity and civic engagement.
- Friday: The SF Bicycle Coalition and other organizations will hold a rally for action on Vision Zero and memorial for those who have been killed on SF’s streets — including three victims in just the last two weeks. 10 a.m.
